So woke: Biden administration now calls illegal immigrants “people seeking to enter US between ports of entry”


The following editorial expresses the opinion of the author, a current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today. 

MADRID- Dear Dementia Joe: If you put lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig. This is of course in reference to the situation at the border, which became more dire this week when dozens of illegals trying to enter the United States died inside a sweltering tractor trailer, their blood on the hands of Joe Biden and Alejandro Mayorkas.

Despite that, Biden still insists that the southern border is “closed.” His newest diversity hire, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said on  Tuesday, “But the fact of the matter is, the border is closed…”

She apparently said it with a straight face, while accompanying Biden on a NATO summit in Madrid, according to CNS News, a division of the Media Research Center.

In a statement speaking to the deaths he caused who died of heatstroke, which killed 51 illegals entering the country, Biden of course didn’t refer to them as the politically incorrect term of “illegal aliens.” In fact, he didn’t even use the much preferred term “undocumented migrants.”

No, old sleepy is now using a new term to describe the hundreds of thousands of illegals crossing our southern border with Mexico—“people who are seeking to enter the United States between ports of entry.”

Expect those words to be the new talking points used by the mainstream media talking heads. Just like if you call people “justice involved individuals” instead of criminal thugs, it doesn’t sound as bad.

Of course, the administration couldn’t resist the opportunity to bash Republicans who have continually railed against the crisis at the border since Biden has allowed well in excess of one million illegals, some on terror watch lists, to enter the country. Republicans of course took the case involving the 51 dead migrants killed by Biden and Mayorkas’s policies and laid the blame squarely where it belongs.

The Brandon administration, however, claims Republicans are “exploiting” the situation:

“Exploiting vulnerable individuals for profit is shameful, as is political grandstanding around tragedy,” the statement said, calling criticism of Biden’s non-existent border policies as “grandstanding.”

Following is a statement released which we’re supposed to believe was penned by Biden (no doubt in between bites of tapioca pudding and naps):

The tragic loss of life in San Antonio, Texas that took place yesterday is horrifying and heartbreaking. Our prayers are with those who lost their lives, their loved ones, as well as those still fighting for their lives. As always, I am grateful for the swift work of all of the federal, state, and local first responders.[no he isn’t, he just had to say that]

While we are still learning all the facts about what happened and the Department of Homeland Security has the lead for the investigation, initial reports are that this tragedy was caused by smugglers or human traffickers who have no regard for the lives they endanger and exploit to make a profit.

This incident underscores the need to go after the multi-billion-dollar criminal smuggling industry preying on migrants and leading to far too many innocent deaths. In Los Angeles two weeks ago, I announced that the United States has launched a first-of-its kind anti-smuggling campaign with our regional partners. In the first three months, we have made over 2,400 arrests and that work will only intensify in the months ahead.

Exploiting vulnerable individuals for profit is shameful, as is political grandstanding around tragedy, and my Administration will continue to do everything possible to stop human smugglers and traffickers from taking advantage of people who are seeking to enter the United States between ports of entry.

Did you read that load of garbage? A little over eighteen months ago, this problem was virtually solved. Why does this inept buffoon think that all of a sudden human smugglers and traffickers hung out their “open for business” signs?

Because he and his inept gaggle of morons who comprise this administration have hung out theirs. Biden may think he’s fooling the American people but it’s only the infinitesimal number of brain-dead people who tune into CNN and MSNBC every night. The rest of the country have their eyes wide open.

Has Biden even watched some of those interviewed waiting to cross into our country? Nearly every single one of them say they are coming here because Biden has promised they wouldn’t be removed once they were in our country. When people hear that, of course they’re going to allow themselves to be exploited by the worst people among them. This is 100% on Biden and his gang of incompetent boobs.

On Tuesday, the completely out-of-her league press secretary told reporters:

“We’re focused on continuing our historic actions to disrupt dangerous smuggling networks [does anyone believe that?], including through a new anti-smuggling campaign that just in the first two months resulted in over 1,800 arrests [thought Biden said 2,400?]. But the fact of the matter is, the border is closed which is in part why you see people trying to make this dangerous journey using smuggling networks.

“Again, our hearts go out to the families at this time. We are going to stay focused on the facts and making sure that we hold these smugglers accountable. That’s going to be our focus.”

Focus. That is why there are record numbers of illegals entering our country unabated. According to US Customs and Border Patrol Statistics, 1,526, 899 illegals have been encountered at the US-Mexico border thus far in FY 2022, a number which doesn’t include so-called “got-aways.”

By way of example, in FY 2020, after the border wall had started being constructed, there were just over 458,000 encounters at the border. That compares to the over 1.5 million thus far in FY 2022 and that is only 2/3 into the fiscal year.

Yup, those borders sure look closed to us.

Now, for more on the “horse whipping” incident that never happened at the border, we invite you to:


According to a report from Fox News, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is preparing to discipline “multiple agents who have been accused of “whipping” Haitian migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border back in September of 2021.

Two agency officials confirmed that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the federal agency that investigated the incident, will accuse the horse patrol agents of “administrative violations.” One of the sources said that it is unlikely the individuals will be fired.

CBP initiated the investigation after images of the altercation were seized on by Democrats and provoked national outrage. The migrants were attempting to cross the border illegally.

Many Democrats and media outlets falsely described the agents’ long reins, which they use to control their horse, as “whips.”

Fox News reported that media outlets like ABC, CBS, and NBC pushed the debunked claim that Border Patrol agents were whipping Haitian migrants, but didn’t bother to inform viewers that it was discredited.

The Department of Homeland Security’s Office of the Inspector General declined to investigate, indicating that it had not found any criminal actions were taken by the agents, kicking it back down to CBP investigators.

Nearly nine months later, CBP has yet to release the results of its in-house investigation and the employees involved remain on desk duty.

At the time of the incident, President Joe Biden weighed in on the controversy saying, “those people will pay.” He added:

“There will be an investigation underway now and there will be consequences. There will be consequences.”

The source said that DHS will be putting forth proposals to discipline the agents who will have a chance to respond to the charges. The charges are “administrative violations” and do not amount to criminal conduct, of which the agents were previously cleared.

Back in January, the Washington Examiner reported that the Biden administration promised a “quick” review of the incident, but the lack of a conclusion vindicating the agents has prompted suspicion among DHS officials. A DHS official said in a phone interview:

“I doubt that the current administration will release this report on the horse patrol incident because it makes the administration look terrible. They essentially convicted the mounted agents based upon a lie, which the investigation after 120 days would surely have revealed.”

The official added:

“My experience would be that this would have been done within a period of weeks.”

A second DHS official said that the agents fulfilled their job responsibilities and that if what they did on horseback was wrong, then the Biden administration ought to look at the conduct of mounted agents at police departments across major cities. The second official said:

“If what they were doing was against policy, then by logic, all mounted horse patrol units in law enforcement in the United States should be disbanded because a show of force along with physically apprehending people is the purpose of mounted units. The New York Police Department should not have horse units then because they’re too intimidating.”

Both DHS officials pointed to comments made by the photographer who said the pictures were taken out of context.

“History will remember this as an invasion of America”: In just ten weeks, more than a half-million immigrants crossed the border

May 22nd, 2022

SOUTHWEST BORDER – During a ten-week period, more than a half-million migrants crossed the border illegally.

Border patrol is overwhelmed by the massive number of migrants crossing the southwest border.


From April 1 to May 15, around 513,000 migrants crossed the border illegally. This information is from the Southwest Border Migration Report and an unofficial report from law enforcement.

The El Paso sector is now the site of a major surge in migrant crossings.

According to Breitbart, agents in the El Paso Sector detained approximately 5,000 illegal migrants in their processing center just on Monday. Fifty percent of this number is made up of Haitian migrants.

An anonymous source who spoke to Breitbart commented that at the expense of local government and charitable resources, hundreds of migrants are being released into El Paso.

Migrant apprehension in the El Paso Sector has surpassed 1,500 and is at more than double its capacity. The Del Rio Sector is reporting that they are nearly 40 percent beyond their capacity.


April set a record for apprehensions. Agents put more than 201,000 illegal migrants in custody. These numbers exceed records set during the Clinton administration.

Even though U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials stated the borders of the United States “are not open,” the April report shows otherwise.

In 2020, there was a record-level low number of apprehensions. 16,182 migrants were apprehended during that period of time. April 2022 revealed 201,800 migrant apprehensions. This is a steep increase of almost 1,150 percent in just two years.


An additional 364,000 illegal migrants fled and successfully crossed into the United States. Add that to the already 1.2 million who were apprehended just in 2022.

Chris Magnus, CBP Commissioner, remarked in a written statement during the release of the April Southwest Land Border Encounters report

“The fact is that our borders are not open, and we will continue to remove those who enter our country unlawfully and have no legal basis to stay.

After many months of planning, we are executing a comprehensive strategy to safely, orderly, and humanely manage our borders.”

The southwest border with Mexico is a dangerous location. It is disorderly and tragic. Almost two dozen illegal migrants have drowned in April in the Del Rio Border Patrol.

Reports show the hazardous and life-threatening conditions that are occurring in human smuggling operations at the border.

Videos from Eagle Pass and the Rio Grande Valley continue to reveal illegal migrants crossing.
